Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 432 reviews and 573 photos


Geylang Park Connector / Marina East extension (7)

The Park Connector?s last bend curves around the mega Costa Rhu Condo. There it comes to an end. A dead end as it seems.

So how to connect to the (East Coast) Park?

Look more closely along the water edge and you?ll see there?s a 50cm gap left between the ?Gardens by the Bay? fence and water! After some 7 meters it allows access to a trail underneath Sheares Bridge and then to the (yet) undeveloped promenade of Marina East. This might well be your last chance to explore Marina East in relative state of wilderness!

Marina East is currently little known and comprises 140 ha of reclaimed land bounded to the north by East Coast Parkway, to the east by East Coast Park and to the South and West by the sea. The only permanent development so far is the recently opened 18 hole Marina Bay Golf Course, which has an access road from Tanjong Rhu, but rumors go that a new Disneypark may open here in far future!
